Using this technique, Gaara can cover himself in a compacted layer of [[sand]], providing an additional defence should his [[Shield of Sand]] fail; combined, these two are known as Gaara's {{translation|"Absolute Defence"|絶対防御|Zettai Bōgyo}}. Though quite effective, maintaining the armour requires a large amount of [[chakra]] and stamina. Furthermore, it is nowhere as resilient as the Shield of Sand, since it easily breaks away upon impact, indicating that the sole purpose of the armour is to absorb impact channelled unto Gaara's body during battle. Another weakness is the additional weight of the sand which leads to decreased levels of speed and mobility.

This technique is the second part of Gaara's "Absolute Defence", his Shield of Sand being the first part. As the name implies, Gaara covers his body in a layer of sand, wearing it like armour. Although it defends him from attacks that bypass his Shield of Sand, maintaining it consumes a great deal of chakra. Furthermore, it does not activate automatically like the Shield of Sand does (instead relying on Gaara to apply when needed), nor is it as resilient;[1] wherever part of the Armour of Sand is struck, that section of it crumbles away. The sand itself also weighs Gaara down, slowing him and placing greater strain on his movements. Despite all this, the Armour of Sand's combination with the Shield of Sand is an effective one, enabling Gaara to go years without the slightest injury.[2]
